8 to 18 inches of snow between Thursday and Sat.. The real ugly part is the wind. The last snow has not been blown around yet and the forecast has 22 mph wind from the NE on Thursday, 23 mph from the NW on Friday and 26 mph from the west. In other words it could be Sunday before the plows can attempt to reopen the roads.

Updated forecast. Now they have the 20+ mph winds starting Wed. and lasting until Sat. night. 4 days of high wind from 3 different directions with at least 10 inches and maybe 20 inches of loose snow on the lake. frown.gif

This "stratigic withdrawl" back closer to the roads may well turn into a rout. grin.gif

How much snow are they calling for tomorrow and is it supposed to be the same down in the metro area as near URL?

They're still saying 8 to 18 before it's done.

My son was swimming in Sectionals last Saturday in Bemidji and just for the heck I ran up to Red, Paid my road pass and moved my house closer to the pine tree road about 7 miles out of Hillmans and left to get back to the meet by 2:00 PM.

Is the pine tree road still plowed out that far?

The end of the plowing on that road is beyond all of the houses.

It started coming down here about 90 minutes ago. Nothing heavy yet but the wind is 18 outta ESE. My kids in Moorhead and Fargo say the same.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Thanks Cliff, weather looks dynamite so that's a good start!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect
